Interesting posting this morning from a young law student at Dal, who’s entering second year, just wrapping up an MLIS programme. Unusual background since she will be – once she graduates – one of the few Métis lawyer/librarians.
There’s such a culture difference between law school and library school. In my experience, law students tend to be far more uptight, and drink more, while librarians are relaxed and less self-important. (I’ve heard the same thing from friends in other joint MLIS programs as well). The skills from being a librarian have been ridiculously useful for law school–searching, locating, analysing.
